Chef Kevin Belton shares his recipe for fried oysters.

Raw Oysters

1 / 2 cup cornmeal, preferably yellow

2 tsp. Big Kevin’s seasoning

1 / 2 tsp. salt

Vegetable oil for frying

Loaf of French bread

Rinse oysters and drain. Combine all ingredients except the oil and blend well. Heat oil in a skillet of fryer to 375 degrees.

Dredge the oysters in the seasoned cornmeal and drop a few oysters at a time into the hot oil. Stir often, frying until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Let the oil return to the proper temperature before cooking the next batch.

Herbed Butter:

1 / 2 lb. butter

1 / 4 cup parsley

1 / 4 cup green onion

6 cloves garlic

1 / 2 tsp. salt

Allow butter to get to room temperature. Place all ingredients in food processor and puree until completely smooth. Place in a container and refrigerate until ready to use.
